Further support

Bereavement care

Bereavement can take many shapes and forms at all sorts of different times. It affects individual people in different ways. We will always be here to care, but we understand that people, on occasions, may wish to talk anonymously and at any time of the day or night about how they feel. Through our association with the NAFD, we have a Careline available which can be contacted by any relative or friend at any time. The Careline provides access to bereavement counselling, professional advice on inheritance tax and handling estates and wills as well as information on various welfare benefits. Contact can be made by calling 08705 234659 at any time, day or night, and calls are in the strictest confidence.

In addition, your local clergy are also available for support, as are the charitable organisations listed below:
